This little bakery recently opened just south of the 215 on Rainbow. I stopped in wanting a little pick-me-up. So, what better way to do that then to fill your system with sugar? The shop is on the small side, but still had a cute, inviting feel to it. Their display cases were filled with delicious looking items and after a while I made my choices:
Cream puff – a large flaky pastry filled with tons of cream. It’s sweetness wasn’t overpowering and it was perfect for satisfying my sweet tooth without over-dosing it.
Cannoli – they have two sizes. I went with the small, which they fill when you order to keep it as fresh as possible. The pastry shell was light, crispy and delicate and the filling was equally as good.
Chocolate chip cookies – this was the low-point of the experience. The two cookies I got were small and crumbly, although they had a decent amount of chocolate in them. I prefer my cookies moist enough to almost be considered being undercooked. Maybe that’s why I’m a fan of Mrs. Fields. Their cookies have a slight crispy edge and a sweet, moist interior. The cookies at this bakery had non of that.
I’ll probably be back to try their other baked goods — they even had some cupcakes. I asked if they would ever have macarons and one of the owners said she may look into making some test batches and possibly selling them in the future. If they turn out as well as the cream puffs or cannoli’s, I’ll gladly give them a shot.
